OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Officials say they could not substantiate the claim that a man tried to abduct two students near Oshtemo.

Two elementary students told the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office that a man tried to lure them into his van around 8 a.m. Wednesday in the 700 block of Dragonfly Road near Drake Road in Oshtemo Township.

However, after investigating the incident the sheriff’s office says there is no threat to the public.

“The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office takes these complaints seriously and could not substantiate the claim,” it said in a Thursday release.
